    It is, but I'm not going to rehash it. It's like I said, both sides had big calls in the tie and PSG didn't necessarily come out on top in that regard.

    I just find your bias hilarious. And I will. As much fun as dealing with you is I’ll just pass from here on out.

    No, all the Barca fans I know admit it was absolutely disgusting.

    Why we're talking Barca when Real was the one with the usual gimme call at home in a tight game though I have no idea.

    It's not bias. I call out Barça getting calls all the time. The post above yours for example along with countless others on this forum.

    Which doesn't make it as you say, but whatever. I know Madridistas who agree with the plays I mentioned at the time.

    I didn't bring them up.

    Roma leaked that they're playing Liverpool on their club site.

    Off topic, but "they had (their opponents) beaten if they kept on playing, instead they went back in defence" would closely resemble my assessment of how Australia played against Italy in 2006.

    That game was decided by a fairly dubious penalty award (though it was brought about by an even more dubious piece of defending on Lucas Neill's part), but before that decision the referee had made Italy play for 39 minutes with 10 men for a challenge that a ref hell-bent on helping Italy might have deemed wasn't a straight red.

    If the bloke with the whistle aimed to favour Italy, he took a pretty spectacular detour along the way.

    Barca and Real arguing over who gets more favorable calls and refereeing. That’s kinda funny.

    Both get more than their share. If that’s due to their traditional status or great players, it’s what it is.

    If true that would be the second leg in Rome. Really hope not.

    As a simon-pure, salt-of-the-earth supporter of the mighty Leyton Orient FC, I can only laugh at all the bandwagon fans of big clubs here who point their fingers at other big clubs for getting all the favourable calls. We, on the other hand, will successfully avoid getting favourable calls until we reach the rock bottom of professional football. Turn green with envy, you vain bandwagoners!

    They had their tickets vs. Liverpool released on the site before it got taken down.

    2nd leg. But I still reckon Liverpool go through without too much trouble.

    I don’t care who they get, but I rather they had played Real now than if they’re lucky enough to get to the finals. It’s what it is

    Man if RM get Bayern, they're last 2 runs to the final(assuming they beat Bayern of course) would be absolutely insane.

    I wonder Curtinho will rationalize this considering his previous commentary.

    I guess I'm not the only one who thinks somebody is a closet Madridista.

    Yuck. I don’t think you mean me, but still.

    If I had to pick a La Liga side, I’ve always had a soft spot for the Valencia of David Silva and David Villa. I like watching La Liga, but the wind blows and players go down at times with some of the refs.

    All the big clubs get calls. That’s part of the deal

    I also really liked the Silva/Mata/Villa Valencia.

    Kind of a non story. I'm sure they have tickets and announcements premade for each possible match up.
